About Michael Hudson

I work abroad and work full time so I am not able to visit my villa as often as I would like. I rent this villa to others, not so much as a business, but rather to assist in covering the costs of having a beautiful home in the Mediterranean.

Michael Hudson purchased this villa in 2011

Why Michael Hudson chose Kyrenia Region

I love Northern Cyprus because of the quiet unspoiled lifestyle. The views are wonderful with a range of bars and restaurants. There are many interesting places to visit and always with incredible views There is really something for everyone here.

What makes this villa unique

I love to sit outside by the pool at night having wonderful dinner and sometime with the lights off and star gaze with a cold drink. I also enjoy the views of the mountains with the various weather systems changing in the early mornings. I am also lucky to have very friendly and kind neighbours who have all made me very welcome.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Hiking tours for people of all ages and physical ability are organized by a number of centres in the Kyrenia area generally conducted in the Kyrenia mountain range. One particular tour party, organized by 'association of mountaineering', meets every Sunday during winter season, and every fortnight during summer months. During the winter, the tour programme is published at the beginning of every month explaining the route and where to meet etc. All walks endeavour to show interesting natural and historical features. The tours generally start in the morning and last for three hours. The fire breaks which are cleared into the mountain side during the spring and summer are ideal for exciting downhill mountain by bike. There are also plenty of more gentle off road slopes at the edge of the range.

Coast/Beach:

Public and private beaches are with 5/10 minutes’ drive/walk away. The local beach has two small restaurants. There are a few high quality beach clubs with private beaches, pools, water sports, showers, and cafes. Also 30 minutes’ drive from the famous turtle beach.

lapta which is the next village along has plenty of bars and restaurants and a good water park for the children and adults. 30 minutes’ drive further up the coast you have the busy town Kyrenia with the Venetian harbour.

Travel:

Ercan is the nearest airport and 40 minutes’ drive to Karsiyaka. Car hire is available and advisable for supermarket shopping and sightseeing. Flights to Larnaca in the south are more frequent and shorter as they don't have to touch down in turkey. Larnaca is about 90 minutes’ drive with a simple border crossing to the north. It is possible to hire a car in the south and stay in the north providing you take additional insurance at the border crossing,to cover third party.

Distances:

Local village shop is well within walking distance. Local park with swings, pool table, bar, etc is 5 min walk down hill and local restaurant is five minutes’ walk up the hill where you can watch sunset as you dine.

in Kyrenia there is a splendid Venetian harbour, around which are many restaurants & bars. It is one of the prettiest harbour in the Mediterranean. Overlooking the harbour in Kyrenia is a splendid castle which houses a fascinating shipwreck museum.

Further Details:

Most hotels allow non-residents to have access to their pools if refreshments are purchased there.

there are also two water parks. The dedicated water park in Catalkoy has slides and organized activities for children in the summer whilst the smaller park in lapta is 10 minutes’ drive from the villa.

there are several scuba diving schools around the coast. Wreck diving is available. Snorkelling is a popular activity in the clear waters of the Mediterranean. There are many other water sports available within 15 minutes’ drive of the villa including jet ski hire, speed boat hire, banana and doughnut riding, fishing trips, and even paragliding behind a boat.

paint balling can be enjoyed at sunset beach in lapta, plus other fun activities for you and your children.

Boat trips can be booked from the harbour in kyrenia.

for those who wish to see the sights on horseback there is a riding club. They do beginners lessons and do trail riding visiting local landmarks for the more experienced. There is also horse riding available in the mountains about 20 minutes away from the villa

the cmc golf club near guzelyurt or the brand new korineum golf and country club in esentepe.

you can hire bikes from many main hotels.

The 220km long bespamark and kyrenia mountain chain spans east to west. It begins at the zafer cape on the easternmost tip near to kantara castle and reaches cape korucam on the westernmost edge.

Third Time in the Villa

  • 5 of 5

It is already third time I stayed with my friends in this wonderful villa. The place is absolutely fantastic, the villa - very comfortable, fully furnished and decorated with exquisite taste. You can enjoy each particular detail of the villa, including lovely original masterpieces or copies of nice paintings all over the walls. All bedrooms are equipped with AC, the beds/pillows themselves are very comfortable and bed lining pleasant. There are special seats for children foreseen in each bathroom. WIFI is uninterrupted and quite fast. Kitchen is equipped with all necessary appliances.

The pool and garden full of beautiful plants and flowers, the wooden pergola and stationary barbecue are even more fascinating.

The view is really stunning, upward forestry mountain and the sea down.

The dawn, the afternoon and the evening are equally nice and beautiful in the villa. It is so quit and still surrounding, ideal for relaxing as for families, for couples and so for friends.

We were free in choice to cook at villa/make grill in the barbecue or to go and have a dinner out. The nearest restaurant was in 3 min drive from villa. We sometimes used to go to Girne/Kyrenia to enjoy live music at some bars or to do sightseeing.

Thank you Michael for such a lovely time we spent in your villa.

Wonderful villa, with everything you need!

Very professional from the moment we enquired about the villa. Everything was organised such as transfer, car hire and food in fridge! It made our stay and holiday totally stress free. The villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay, nicely furnished and everything you would want in the kitchen. The pool is fantastic, we hardly left it! A big thank you to Michael and Jacquie!

Lovely villa in relaxed setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is large, extremely well maintained and in a quite setting, just outside the town. Beautifully decorated with a lovely private pool and shaded outside seating area, to avoid the midday sun. We would highly recommend this property and its location to explore the surrounding area.

Abbey View

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a nice quiet location and was perfect for our family of four. Inside it is clean and spacious with everything you need. The pool is a generous size and provided us with some well needed shade in the afternoon. The owner arranged transfers and car hire for us, both were provided with excellent service and were good value too - really took the hassle out of trying to find the villa at night. The car was delivered and collected on time without any hidden extras.

Overall we had a great time on Northern Cyprus and found eating out etc to be exceptionally good value - lots of good restaurants and bars.

Would not hesitate to return to Northern Cyprus and this lovely villa.

Quiet, relaxing and simply perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Everything leading up to the holiday was done extremely professionally and any requests or support both pre-holiday and during our holiday we managed extremely well. The owner was always available via email and ready and on-hand to answer any questions which gave real confidence. Both myself, my partner and our children loved the villa, it was a real home from home feel. The property was clean, comfortable and would recommend this to anyone wanting to travel to Cyprus and looking to stay in the northern part of Cyprus. Upon arrival we were visited by Jacquie and Barry who work for Villa Book, they advised us on where to go and where to eat and generally getting around, really helpful. If I had anything to comment on I would suggest that a map where the Villa is, and where local eateries are and the cuisine they offer would be even more helpful than the written down advice given to us from Barry and Jacquie. Lots of places were mentioned but when you get alot of info at the beginning of your holiday, it's a lot to take in. maybe a 'Welcome Pack' of the area and all eateries and places to go might be an option, but like I say the verbal support from them was great.

Recommendations

Restaurants

Silver Rocks. Doesn't look much from the outside, but we had a lovely meal one evening and also spent a couple of hours there one afternoon. It overlooks the sea and is a very nice place to eat and relax.

Wild Duck. A must for breakfast. English speaking and very very cheap. For 5 of us and full English breakfasts with drinks, was just over £20.

Getting Around

Get a car. I wasn't going to get one but was advised to get one and very glad we did.

Kyrenia - evening market. Not may stalls but a nice evening walk after dinner on the Marina.

Positives

Villa was big, spacious, clean, quiet location and ideal for a family. We had loads of fun.

Advise and support from Barry and Jacquie was as mentioned really good and like the owner always on-hand if needed. My only advise would be that a map of where the villa is and the eateries around.

Negatives

Nothing to really speak of, but the kids mentioned the WiFi was sometimes a little temperamental, but nothing to write home about.

Baked bird poo would often be around the walkway having falling from the roof, but sweeping it everyday would keep it clean, but again no major issue at all.

In summary - a fantastic holiday - thank you

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to learn that you and family have loved and enjoyed your stay at the villa. The Property Management (Jacquie and Barry) and I always go that extra mile from the pre-booking to the departure date to ensure you have free trouble holiday. We do care about our valued guests and we are professional and customer focus and will try our best to satisfy our guests and provide them with quality services. We really do appreciate your recommendations to our valued guests on the restaurants and the facilities close to the villa. We also thank you for your proposal of providing a map for the restaurants around the villa in addition to the already provided welcome pack information on the nearby places of interests, restaurants , etc and on Cyprus. The high speed multimax WiFi system connected to the villa is part of the Northern Cyprus internet services provided by Turk Telekom (aka TTNET) (in Turkey). Turkish Telekom has experienced some problems during the month of August, which is causing degrading speeds and sometime loss in connection. However, efforts have been made to solve the issue and now the WiFI is running normally. The issue of falling of dry pigeon mess scarcely on a walking area (which is very small and limited area) will be dealt with by installing a guttering as it has been done on other area of the villa as a measure to rectify this issue. The villa roof has been covered with metal spikes and netting system and that prevented the pigeon from resting on the roof except for occasional and very few pigeon. We will ensure measures taken to make it less disturbing as possible and we will carry on doing that. For the meantime, and until the completion of the installation of gutter, and for an extra charge, we can arrange daily cleaning services for this outside limited walking area to make it less disturbing. However, I believe it is not that bad as I have personally observed this during my stay in the villa in July this year and it is not a major issue as you said. Many thanks for taking the time to write this good review and for your recommendations and we are more than happy to welcome you back in the villa and for you and family to have another fantastic holiday in the villa in not distance future.
